If clients are disappointed at


delaying their dream theme park break, switch-sell to the best outdoor attractions at home, writes Katie McGonagle


heme park holidays aren’t like your average package break – people save for them, dream about them and get little ones excited for


months, even years, ahead of travel, so it’s even more heartbreaking to tell your clients they have to postpone given the current travel restrictions. While you plough your efforts into encouraging them to defer, rather than cancel, their big-ticket break to later in the year or even to 2021, what can you do in the meantime? With the industry’s hopes pinned on recovering some of their lost business this summer, consider offering customers a domestic break visiting some of the fantastic attractions closer to home, once government recommendations on travel are relaxed. The UK and Ireland are awash with great places to


go, from natural beauty spots to outdoor adventures, grand historical sites to craggy coastlines, and with many fewer foreign visitors travelling to our shores, clients would be doing their bit to keep the British tourist economy going.

Whether you believe the legend or the science, this natural attraction is not to be missed. Visitors can climb across its perfectly formed hexagonal columns, looking out for notable spots such as the Giant’s Boot (said to measure at a mammoth shoe size of 93.5) and the well-worn Wishing Chair, or embark on a five-mile clifftop hike to see the causeway from above. Peak District: One of the UK’s biggest attractions is its bucolic scenery, and some of the best can be found in the wide, open spaces of the Peak District, where you might not see another soul for miles.
